Half way through Trevayne I thought I had incontrovertible proof that Robert Ludlum was the greatest writer in english ever. Why did I believe that? Trevayne concerns itself with a Senate subcommittee set up to investigate defense spending misappropriations. Yes you read that correctly. Ludlum sat down and thought, "I know how to keep the readers interest. I'll write a book about a government committee looking into corporation ledgers." I thought it was a Ludlum book so there would be action and world travel. Nope. Over the first half of the book is about the work of a Senate subcommittee investigating malfeasance. They look at ledgers and interview executives. But I kept reading. Somehow Ludlum made it interesting enough for me to keep turning pages.
Then sadly comes the second half of the book. Entire plot points are forgotten. Characters act in seemingly unexplainable ways so the plot moves along. Finally the book ends with no resolution whatsoever. It's like he got bored half way through.
